carville and former bush white house press secretary ari fleischer. both cnn contributors. guys, thanks very much. there's going to be another huge fight in the coming weeks over raising the nation's debt ceiling. there's going to be a battle between john boehner and mitch mcconnell. here's a washington post poll that just came out. do you approve of the budget negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff were handled? 52% agree with the president handled and only 31%, john boehner. ari, who has more political capital going into this next round? >> well, on a poll like that, john boehner is not known by 100% of the country. so it's not as indicative of that poll. the president is more popular than the congress and the president has more leverage than the congress does. at the end of the day, though, we're all in one nation and have to do something about this debt to save our children from it being such a burden. that still requires everyone to come together. no matter how you slice it, the republican hand is a weaker one, the president's is a stronger one. >> does he have any hand right now w

[laughter] >> let me ask you a little bit about patrick moore. when you think that we can conceivably do tax reform without an agreement this tax code needs to raise? >> without an agreement, would it even make sense to try to do tax reform? >> by and large, no. there is a question about being revenue neutral and what neutrality would be and whether you could move around at things in that context. that is much harder to do. and once you start doing fundamental tax reform, what do you think? >> i think that sounds pretty good. so we can talk about this going forward. >> certainly okay, thank you. okay, let me try to be optimistic here. it's interesting that during the debate, and for a wild during the fiscal cliff debate, there was a discussion about support from across the aisle. bob, you
